I've been having a bit of trouble with my 6 week old. For the past 2 weeks he has been extremly fussy at night before bed. At around 8-9pm he starts fussing and is absolutely inconsolable unless i feed him more formula. I've been getting conflicting comments about this from my pediatrician and other mothers. I was told that if i give him some water (boiled of course) with the smallest amount of sugar to sweeten it, that he would start to be ok between feedings.
It's getting to the point where i just want to rip out my hair because he just refuses to stop crying until about 11-11:30pm, but after that he is fine for the night.
Does anybody have any suggestions? I would really appreciate anything you can throw at me.
